My son is 26 months and 27 pounds. He coould be rear facing a bit longer but when he's rear facing he manages to wiggle the straps off of his shoulder. Any suggestions to prevent him from doing this? I would like him RF for another 8 pounds but if I can't stop this, I won't. I turned him forward last time we were in the car and he doesn't do it. Suggestions? The straps are tight enough and the chest clip is in the right place.
Please don't answer if you don't agree with extended RF. I want what is safest for my son.

Are you sure that you have everything properly adjusted?
He should not have enough room in the straps to wiggle out. For rear facing, you should use the slots just below his shoulders. You should also only be able to slip 2 fingers between him and the straps.
